How to prepare for your family portrait session

Making it magic!

Follow these simple steps to help make your families portrait session even more magic . . . and get ready to fall in LOVE with your family photos. 

A FEW WEEKS BEFORE

Outfit selection time! We all know how quickly kids grow, so pick out those picture-perfect ensembles and give them a test run. 

Trim those locks a week or two ahead of the session. This way, you'll have some wiggle room in case of any enthusiastic haircut mishaps. We've all had those "oops" moments!

Start thinking about where you'd like to display your stunning portraits. Let your imagination run wild, whether it's the living room, hallway, or even a cozy nook.

To tailor your session to you and your family, make sure you fill out our pre-shoot questionnaire. It helps us customise the experience just for you!

ON THE DAY OF THE SESSION

Get ready early, leave plenty of time for showers, doing hair and getting dressed. Nothing can spoil a fun session like losing your cool in a race to get out the door. We've all been there!

Happy tummies mean happy faces. If your session is scheduled around dinnertime, consider having an early meal or a filling snack beforehand. We want everyone to feel their best during the shoot!

AT THE SESSION

Relax. Breathe. Have fun. We've got it from here.

Leave the directing to us. With over 15 years of experience capturing beautiful family moments, we've got a treasure trove of tricks up our sleeves. Expect us to summon expert ballet dancers, ninjas, and maybe even giraffe impersonators for some extra magic!

While we won't expect the kids to sit still, smile, and pose all the time (though we might ask!), we'll gently guide them to bring out their best moments. As for the grown-ups and older kids, we'll gladly offer some tips to help them look their absolute best.

Don't fret if the little ones are bouncing around like wild monkeys. Trust us when we say we've seen it all. Sometimes, those energetic moments are when the real magic happens!

Remember, this is your time to shine as a family. Embrace the joy, laughter, and authentic moments. We'll be there, capturing it all.

Let's create some portrait magic together!

And if you have any questions at all, just reach out: we are ready and willing to help.
